Pick Of The ‘Fork: Can You Spot The Fake?

Oct 13th, 2006 // 4 Comments

pitchfork.jpgWelcome to another week of Pick of the ‘Fork, where we try and match metaphors with the indie agenda-setters at Pitchfork. The drill: We post four sentences, three of which are from actual Pitchfork reviews. Your goal is to spot the ‘Fork pastiche that was actually crafted by Idolator’s editors. (We’re currently on a two-week streak of fooling the masses, in case you’d forgotten.)

Results–and links to the original reviews–will be posted later this afternoon. Happy guessing, and remember, no cheating!

    I picked the last quote, because I’m hoping it’s fake — if not, what were they thinking?

  2. Ned Raggett

    No, that sounds like it could be a Muse review.

  3. rchick

    food references? dreadful, absolutely dreadful.

  4. Bob Loblaw

    Upon inspection, that last metaphor shattered into shards of vomit.
